Splinter Cell: Blacklist confirmed for Wii U

"Enhanced gameplay features" with Wii U GamePad.

Nintendo has confirmed Splinter Cell: Blacklist, the seventh game in Ubisoft’s third-person stealth series, will come to Wii U alongside the already announced PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC versions on August 22 in North America and EMEA territories, and August 23 in the UK. 

The Wii U version will offer “enhanced gameplay features” through the Wii U GamePad. It allows players to “operate innovative gadgets, take out enemies and move through the environment, and intuitively switch between weapons, among other features.”

It will include four levels, including the Wii U-exclusive “Murfy’s Dungeon” stage. New challenges will be added daily and weekly, each with their own leaderboard.
